The ingredient list (per sandwich);

  • 1 Egg (cooked to your desired doneness)
  • 2 Slices Bread (your favorite)

There is just something about a sandwich with a runny yolk (if that’s not your thing, you can cook your egg to your desired doneness), tons of melted cheese, and a healthy dose of fresh springtime asparagus that gets my taste buds watering.

Now I’m totally craving this grilled cheese breakfast sandwich again, and I think I might have to make it for dinner tonight!

When I originally had the idea to make this sandwich my plan was to use panko breadcrumbs as the bread coating for some added crunch. However, upon assembling my ingredients, I realized that I didn’t have the panko in the cabinet as I normally do.

It was a sad moment for me because I thought the recipe idea would have to be put on hold. Luckily, that wasn’t the case and that’s when improvisation and creativity kicked in. 

Since I happened to have a box of cornflake crumbs in the cabinet that I use for making my Ham and Cheese Breakfast Strata, the light bulb in my head immediately went off, and the results were better than I could have expected!

Take THAT panko! 😉

Now I’m hungry and want some eggs. LOL!   

Eggs are a fantastic choice for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! They’re a great source of protein, and they’re incredibly versatile. Just don’t forget to season them with salt and pepper. A little goes a long way when it comes to seasoning an egg, but it’s a step you don’t want to leave out.

The light crunch of the cornflake coating pairs nicely with the creamy melted provolone cheese.

What goes better in the morning with eggs than a bloody Mary? Spiked or not, it’s a wonderful choice, and one I’m quite fond of.
